DOTA Stars

A fanart I did for WCIII Dota all stars. It was pretty hard to take reference from the low-polygon in-game models! Anyway, hopefully this can take the place of the loading screen in the next update (don't really like the current one ;p)

Done in Painter IX. Each hero took me about 1.5 hours +-

** This image is done as wallpaper for all DOTA fans. 1280x960

** Added colour tints to the image. For those who prefer a b&w version, here is the [link]

Aaawww man... This brings back memories... To think almost every time I loaded the game, I was seeing this guys work. And the old dota... MMMM! Nostalgiaaaaaa! Almost makes me wanna hop on WC3 and play some dota 1~!
Almost. Back to DotA 2! :D
Very nice artwork, I like the way Illidan (Or terror blade) looks, very cool.

Dude tell me you still play. Goodness I only thing me an my brother haven't done in the game is destroy someone fountain. Everyone keeps leaving before we can do it and one time we brought it to half hp but the game ended. That's the only thing left to do in that game for me and my bro (after that we're retiring; unofficially as long as me an my bro played on our computers we never lost a 2vs2 game).

Gorgeous work on this, I like the close-up style of the portraits. My favourite one is the woman. I'm astonished it only took you 1.5 hours for each one, they are so cleanly drawn with sure lines, like perfect sculptures.
